I spent the better part of the last two weeks applying Arm R Seal to the table. The table top got four brushed coats of full strength Arm R Seal on each side. Between each coat I buffed with a 1000 grit festool platin pad. I then wiped on a 50/50 mix of Arm R Seal and Naphtha on each side. Here is the top after the fourth coat: And after the final wipe on coat: The base got five coats of wiped on Arm R Seal/Mineral Spirits 50/50 mixture: Finally, it was time to attach the b...
Using a band saw I’m going to re-saw a solid Walnut board and 12’’ tall and 1.5’’ thick into 2 boards that will feature a beautiful grain book match. This board is to be used as the underside of a custom rocking chair seat. Check it out! Thanks for having a look always fun to share. (-:

Grafting, for those who may not know (and I’m no expert) is basically splicing two species of trees together to help with the propagation of the desired spe...
Well, the top is all glued up and belt sanded to flatten the ridges. The boards glued together quite nicely and it’s not very noticeable that I had to rip them into four boards instead of two. Since the lumber I had was all from the same tree, I was able to sequence match two boards to make the top and bookmatched them. There were a few open knots that needed filling so I mixed a little dust with some epoxy and that’s what those globs are on the top. The repairs should l...
